Precision parts made from high-quality materials may cost more than alternatives, but in the long run they solve problems and save both time and money. This article explains how value engineering and cost performance modeling helps reduce cost of ownership.
Our GLASSMATE® family of materials have been specifically developed for use in hot glass contact applications. Review our complete portfolio of graphite grades, specialty items, and finished premium graphite components.
This case study breaks down the four main considerations for effective EDM of non-standard alloys: the work metal, EDM process priority, electrode material, and machine, and then looks at how adjusting parameters accordingly is essential to being profitable.
This article explains how EDM operators can improve EDM performance by understanding five main factors of electrode material selection and the relationship between the electrode, workpiece material, and machine parameters.
In this case study, United Sunglass Apparel sources Entegris to create an EDM-3® graphite mold capable of maintaining intricate detail with flex strength sufficient to hold sharp details and uniform structure required for their unique barbwire design lanyards.
In this case study, JB Precision Toys was challenged with creating an injection mold for a miniature military figure that could be pieced together with different details and create a diverse collection. Needing an electrode material that would allow the machining of extremely fine detail and perform with minimal electrode wear while achieving the required surface finish, they reached out to Entegris.
